"Welcome to my yacht," Ryan Lochte says, with his eyes, and with his navy blue blazer. Ralph Lauren designed Team USA's opening and closing ceremony looks, which include white selvedge denim trousers, a red, white, and blue striped top, and patriotic boat shoes.

Team Canada

Dean and Dan Caten, the Canadian brothers behind Milan-based label Dsquared2, teamed up with department store Hudson's Bay to design their home country's uniforms. A blazer-windbreaker mash-up might sound weird in theory, but it totally works here. Hit after hit from Drake and Justin Bieber, a snazzy new prime minister, and some of the best-looking outfits at the Rio games—Canada has a lot to be proud of in 2016.

Team France

Lacoste engineered France's blue, white, and red uniforms, complete with slim-fitting polos, waterproof ponchos, and cute lil French flag alligator logos.

Team Cuba

If those sneakers look extra-fancy, that's because Christian Louboutin designed them! Actually, he designed all of Team Cuba's opening and closing Ceremony looks along with Henry Tai, a former professional handball player and founder of French online retail shop sporthenri.com. Note the Cuban flag patches, and the Guayabera-inspired jackets.

Team Sweden

What do we have in common with the Swedish Olympic team? We both shop at H&M! The mega-retailer outfitted Sweden's athletes in blue and gold garments made from sustainable materials like recycled polyester.

Team Italy

Rather than incorporating the red, white, and green color palette of the Italian flag, Giorgio Armani went in a more minimalist direction with his home country's navy Olympic uniforms.

Team South Korea

Team South Korea is going to the same boat party as Team USA in those white pants and navy blazers. One big difference between the two countries' ensembles? South Korea's outfits are infused with mosquito repellent that officials say will help protect athletes from the Zika virus.

Team Great Britain

Stella McCartney's gear for Team Great Britain is splashed with a sporty hodgepodge of patriotic graphics, from Union Jacks to crowns, national flowers (leek, rose, flax, thistle), and lions holding Olympic batons.

Team Australia

Oh hi, Team Australia! There's room for you at the boat party, too. Designed by Aussie outfitter Sportscraft, the country's Olympic opening ceremony looks feature mint green pinstriped blazers, green and gold ties, knee-skimming shorts, vented skirts, and white oxford shoes (no socks).
